Thanks, BoopBoopaddoop.

Everything is okay. I guess you could say that I had some problems getting started with the Archive. First, I didn't understand why my first upload didn't go into the category where it belonged, and I could find no way to reassign it there (animation and cartoons). Then I was told that it was fine, it belonged in Community Video (huh? what?). Then after a few days, it not only ended up in the right collection, but with attendant thumbnails, images and derived codecs as well! Great! But it is still a mystery to me how this happened.

I was very new to the Archive -- my first upload, in fact -- so I was a bit befuddled by it all.

I have now gotten over that. I found another Betty Boop cartoon missing from the Archive, so I uploaded it today. Since I now know what to expect, it's all okay, and I plan to become a dedicated contributor, depending, of course, on what I can find to contribute.

Thank you for your response.
